As we all know, few things are less meaningful than 40 times for O-Linemen, but sometimes your just forced to take notice. G/C Mike Golic, Jr. (6'4 3/8", 300) ran Pro Day 40 times of 4.56 and 4.58 yesterday, according to Gil Brandt, of nfl.com. How rare is that? Maybe a couple of O-Linemen run a sub 5.00-40 each year, usually in the 4.9's. Just remember how stunned everyone was this year at the Combine when OT's Tevron Armstead and Lane Johnson ran unheard of 4.71 and 4.72-40's. In fact, only 1 TE ran faster than Golic (Chris Gragg's 4.50-40), at the Combine.
Golic had an all around good Pro Day, with 31 bench reps, a 28.0" vertical, an 8-10 broad jump, a 7.77 3-cone drill, and a 4.88 20-yard shuttle, but it's that 40 time that really sets him apart.
What will this mean for Golic's draft chances? It's very had to say, because pryor to this he wasn't even ranked in the draft's top 750 players by nfldraftscout.com, as of 3/21/13.
Golic's father is Mike Golic, Sr., of ESPN's "Mike & Mike, In The Morning" fame.
Maybe Golic's 4.56 and 4.58 40 times are a misprint, and should read 5.56 and 5.58?
